Dissolving of Parliament, Holding of Nominations and General Elections in 2009

Is The Timing for This To Be This Year, Rather Than Next Year 2010, Something To Be Observant About?

 It was in the year 2005 last when general elections was held as much as six (6) months ahead of the end of the five (5) year term that the regime at that time where to have held on to power for. The regime at that time was the United Workers Party (UWP) which was then lead by the now President of that party, Hon. Edison C. James. Was the calling for an early general elections was by way of an observation made that had they waited until about the end of the five (5) year term to hold general elections that they would have suffered a defeat at the polls? Or, was it out of such great confidence of a victory of being re-elected for a second consecutive term in office why they did so? Choosing to face the electorate at the polls six (6) months earlier, sure profited them a lost of the majority of seats in Parliament by only three (3), emerging with nine (9) seats in Parliament. Out of the available twenty-one (21) seats in Parliament, the party (-ies) forming the government must win and be in command of at least eleven (11) of the twenty-one (21) seats to be in the majority.
    This same situation has again struck this country some nine (9) years and ten (10) months later under the current Dominica Labour Party (DLP) regime lead by Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit. The last general elections having been held over four (4) years and seven (7) months ago in May 2005, a five (5) year term in office would sure have been up not until May of next year 2010 when one would have expect about when this country would have been on the horizon of facing another general elections.
    Constitutionally, however, general elections is due not until October of next year 2010, which means that the current regime could have continue ruling for about even an extra five (5) more months past the five (5) years that they are scheduled to be in office for. This would simply mean that a calling for general elections to take place during this month of December 2009 would not only have been five (5) months earlier (after four (4) years and seven (7) months of governance), before the end of the scheduled five (5) year term in office, but even by as much as TEN (10) months ahead of when general elections is constitutionally due next year 2010.
    At a political meeting of his ruling DLP, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit announced to his party supporters and the nation on a whole on Thursday evening 19th November 2009 that he has advised the President to dissolve Parliament with immediate effect, which was of course during the daylight working hours of that same day Thursday 19th November 2009. Included in that advise to the President is that nominations be held on Wednesday 2nd December 2009 and that general elections be held on Friday 18th December 2009.
    General elections must be held within ninety (90) days after the dissolving of Parliament according to the constitution but the Prime Minister decided that general elections be held within about thirty (30) days after a TEN (10) months earlier dissolving of Parliament. This way in which he has done it has therefore made for nominations day to occur exactly two (2) weeks following the dissolving of Parliament and exactly two (2) weeks preceding the date he set for general elections.
    Could there be anything in all of this snap calling for general elections for the Bible practitioner to be observant about?
    This was the same thing that was being done by the then regime of the United Workers Party (UWP) nine (9) years and ten (10) months ago in January 2000 which, on the Bible calendar at that time, was during the moon of the Bible month number ELEVEN (11) when that genaral elections was held and they ended up loosing to the opposing parties. It was as if their calling for general elections at that time, six (6) months before the end of their scheduled five (5) year term to be in office had arrive, was purposely set to occur in the moon of the Bible month number ELEVEN (11). Number ELEVEN (11) is said in certain Bible practising circles to be a number representing/signifying governmental imperfection.
    Even though one of His chosen Apostles had fallen away into betraying Him, but it was twelve (12) of them that our Savior had chosen initially. Why TWELVE (12), to the point that the fallen Apostle just had to be replaced to ensure that there were TWELVE (12) of them? The significance of this is that numbers do bear a great significance and roll in our Creator's current and future dealings and great master plan in the affairs of mankind here on earth.
    Therefore, any observation in this unfolding political events, from a Bible point of view, to me, would and must have to do with not only the timing, but more so, the time frame chosen in which to fit in from the dissolving of Parliament down to the day of general elections for this year 2009 rather than next year 2010.
     As a person who is practically knowledgeable of the Bible calendar, my observation in all of this has to do with where on the Bible calendar the timing for all of this has occurred or that our Creator has determined that these events are to occur to perhaps send across a message that He so desires to be conveyed concerning the current governance of this country.
    By inspiring it into the heart of former Prime Minister Edison C. James to had make a declaration for the holding of elections six (6) months earlier in January 2000, during the moon of the Bible month number ELEVEN (11), it is perhaps that our Creator's message then to that regime was that their governance is one of imperfection. ELEVEN (11), as well, was the amount of seats in Parliament our Creator had given them (UWP) victory at the polls with in 1995 out of the twenty-one (21) seats to had form the government. It was probably unknowing to them having had general elections held six (6) months earlier in January 2000 that they would have ended up doing so directly in the Bible lunar month bearing the governmental imperfection number ELEVEN (11). What a coincidence that was. But it was with a purpose by our Creator. Giving them ELEVEN (11) seats at the polls in 1995, our Creator, not too long after He established that regime, through a by-election to fill a vacated seat, had amounted their majority of seats in Parliament to TWELVE (12). The message from heaven to them by way of having amounted their amount of seats in Parliament to TWELVE (12) could have been that He our Creator is requiring of them a perfect governance. But instead, what did we hear and see that they did was, during the course of their fourth (4th) year in office, to have lead this nation into a sunrise worship service on the East of the island on 1st January 2000 (if my memory serves me right with the date) during the moon of the Bible month bearing the number TEN (10), a number believed in certain Bible practicing circles to represent/signify double grace. Therefore, we could say by way of the significance of numbers (all of which I do not know at time of writing) in the Bible that judgment was pronounced from heaven through and against that then Prime Minister and his government at that time, that general elections is going to be in the Bible lunar month number ELEVEN (11) on 31st January 2000 with the message that you have fallen from the governmental perfection of the number TWELVE (12) that I've required of you and have in your practice, resorted to the number ELEVEN (11) imperfection of governance, out of which I'd taken you. That administration was eventually on that date of 31st January 2000 in the Bible month number ELEVEN (11) removed from any further governance and thrown back to the opposition side of Parliament with a certain amount of seats, which in number, represented/signified our Creator's finality of judgment against them in the amount of seats in Parliament that they won at the polls was NINE (9).
    So, can we see how Yahweh, as our Creator, does have the full authority in whatever affairs that we as His human creation might be involved in and that numbers are one of the means and ways that He can and does use to declare to us whatsoever the message, warnings and/or judgments that He may so wish to at whatever time and/or place?
    As the current Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit, has already said on more than one occasion that it is only the Creator (well, he says God. But correctly is Yahweh) who knows the date for general elections. Isn't this enough to tell us that it is our Creator who has set it into the heart of Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit the date on which He our Creator has decided that general elections must be held this year 2009 rather than next year 2010, even on a Bible calendar date of our Creator's own choosing which perhaps not even he or any member of his administration knows about?
    It is by our Creator's own designing, therefore, that the dissolving of Parliament, rather than wait until next year 2010 when to do so would have been constitutionally due, instead took place this year 2009 on November 19th just only so that it would INTENTIONALLY have taken place not only on a new moon day, but on the new-moon-first-day of the moon bearing the Bible month number NINE (9). It is on this selfsame date also that the decision was advised to the Presidential head of state that nominations day be on Wednesday 2nd December 2009 which on the Bible calendar was the FOURTEENTH (14th) day of this moon bearing the Bible month number NINE (9). Number FOURTEEN (14), as I have learned it, signifies/represents double completeness/perfection, being two (2) times the number SEVEN (7).
    The visibility of this past new moon in the North America region including here in the Caribbean, was agreeably on Wednesday evening 18th November 2009 (which I was able of sighting from as early as six (6) minutes before sunset), making the following daylight of Thursday 19th November 2009 the new-moon-first-day of the Bible month number NINE (9) when Parliament was being dissolved.
    This moon in which we are now, as I write, being month number NINE (9) on the Bible calendar, what is it that there could be in all of these political snap elections occurring in this current Bible month number NINE (9) for us to be observant about?
    It appears to me, from these things that our Creator has set to occur during this moon of the Bible month number NINE (9), again by way of the significance of numbers in the Bible, that some sort of a finality of judgment is being pronounced/declared from the heavens. The address that the Prime Minister delivered at a public political meeting in which he informed party supporters and the nation that Parliament has been dissolved and the reason for doing so, somehow, to me, sounded very much like a High Court Judge's deliberation of judgment in the sentencing of an accused that has been found guilty.
    Could it be that we're about to see that same sort of a heaven interference in the political affairs of this country in the exact same way that it happened NINE (9) years and TEN (10) months ago in January 2000 when general elections was last held six (6) months earlier than scheduled? The timing on the Bible calendar (NOT according to the Gregorian-Roman calendar used in our society today) for all of this by way of our Creator's own setting, seems to dictate that.
    However, the snap calling for an early general elections to take place this year 2009 rather than next year 2010 appears somehow to be a heavenly message of a much different nature from the one of NINE (9) years and TEN (10) months ago in that, our Creator's Bible timing for this upcoming general elections to take place this year instead of next year, is a different timing from the January 2000 early general elections held in the Bible month number ELEVEN (11). This is because that the upcoming scheduled Friday 18th December 2009 date for the holding of general elections about five (5) months earlier, falls directly on the upcoming new moon day in thirty (30) days after the dissolving of Parliament on this past new moon day which, on the Bible calendar, began the Bible month number NINE (9). This tells us, therefore, that the upcoming Friday 18th December 2009 set date for when general elections is to be held, will be the new-moon-first-day of the Bible month number TEN (10) since, as projected at that, this upcoming new moon will certainly be visible to the North America region including here in the Caribbean on Thursday evening 17th December 2009 immediately preceding the day of general elections. The Bible reckoning of a 24-hour day being from one sunset to the next, the new moon day begins from the sunset/evening that the new moon becomes visible to our naked eyes and ends with the next sunset.
    By making the 1995-2000 UWP regime to have held general elections six (6) months earlier in January 2000 during the Bible month number ELEVEN (11), the message from heaven to them perhaps was that they resorted to an imperfect manner of governance and were therefore voted out of office with NINE (9) seats in Parliament.
    What therefore could be the message from heaven NINE (9) years and TEN (10) months later to the incumbent DLP regime by way of our Creator having made them to have general elections set to take place about five (5) months earlier (from the date on which it was held four (4) years and seven (7) months ago in May 2005) on the upcoming Friday 18th December 2009 new-moon-first-day of the Bible month number TEN (10), being the number TEN (10) represents/signifies double grace? Yes, double grace, being the number TEN (10) is two (2) times the number FIVE (5) which represents/signifies grace.
    I'll be observing for the outcome of the upcoming general elections, if Yahweh permits, to see if Yahweh's message from heaven to the incumbent government and us as a nation, by way of His own chosen heavenly calendar timing for the dissolving of Parliament and the holding of nominations and general elections, that He has found this incumbent DLP regime to worth being extended the opportunity of being allowed a third (3rd) consecutive FIVE (5) year term in office with His grace to them in double measure.
    My observation may not have been well phrased/written but I do hope that it did worth the effort to give a try and can be clearly understood enough to provoke an interest in you to share your comments/feedback/views on, if you so wish to.

    "I said to the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high; speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But Elohim is the judge: he puts down one, and sets up another. For in the hand of Yahweh there is a cup, and the wine is red: it is full of mixture; and He pours out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them" (Psalm 75:4-8).
    "Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding: I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule,and nobles, even all the judges of the earth" (Proverbs 8:14-16).
    "Let  every soul be subject to the higher powers. For there is no power but of Yahweh: the powers that be are ordained of Yahweh. Whosoever therefore resists the power, resists the ordinance of Yahweh: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Will you then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and you shall have praise of the same: For he is the minister of Yahweh to you for good. But if you do that which is evil, be afraid; for he bears not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of Yahweh, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that does evil. Wherefore you must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For for this cause pay you tribute also: for they are Yahweh's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor" (Romans 13:1-7).
    "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Master's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or to governors, as to them that are sent by him for the punishment of evil-doers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of Yahweh, that with well doing you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of Yahweh. Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear Yahweh. Honor the king" (1 Peter 2:13-17).
    "...Render therefore to Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and to Yahweh the things that are Yahweh's" (Matthew 22:21).
